Birdstreet Advent – First 10 Days
My 25-day yarn Advent Calendar from Birdstreet Yarn is so much lovelier than I expected. Each day is such a joy and I cannot wait to share the first ten days of yarn with you!
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
How lovely are these first ten days! These colors are just beautiful!!
I cannot believe a dyer had the foresight to have the full skein unveiled on the first day! This is such a novel concept and I love it!
Here are the colorway names….
1 – Bare Naked (and it’s scrumptious!)
2 – Christmas Wrapping
3 – Baby Please Come Home
4 – Stop the Cavalry
5 – Wonderful Christmastime
6 – War is Over/Peace on Earth
7 – Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
8 – A Spaceman Came Traveling
9 – Merry XMas Everybody
10 – 2000 Miles
I love these colors – they are on theme as to what the inspiration photo indicated and I adore it! The pinks, teals, purples, and blues are just glorious!
Given the neutral, full skein, I’d love to find a huge shawl pattern for this calendar that will use that full skein in between the mini skeins. I do so love my big shawls! As usual, I will wait until January before I try to start anything with this yarn, as I like to re-arrange the colors!
(Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see these mini skeins unveiled the day I open them!)
If you’re unwrapping an Advent goodie each day, I hope it’s bringing you joy! And please let me know if you know of any shawl patterns that would work with this Advent!
